Habitat restoration near Bayston Hill quarry
Habitat restoration near Bayston Hill quarry
The boundary of the quarry has been extensively landscaped, and planted with native trees and a variety of grass and stone habitats, to improve wildlife opportunities as the quarry works. It's remarkably successful - peregrines are regular nesters in the area, and the site records a wide variety of other species in its Biodiversity Action Plan notes. The path in the foreground leads along a 3 million tonne bund on the SE side of the site, with extensive views into the quarry, and out across the nearby farmland. The bund was moved back by about 100 yards recently, to enable an extension to the quarry, whilst increasing the wildlife value of the site.
